About Me

Welcome my name is Sherri. I am a follower of Jesus. I have been blessed to be the wife to my best friend Markiel. I am a mother to my tween son Amari and my preschool daughter Sanai. By God's grace I have found true joy in serving my family in our home. Even amongst all the everyday craziness I know this where God has called me to be. I learn something new everyday. I also recently became a part time bible teacher at my daughter's preschool. So I have the best of both worlds.

Motherhood:How It Changed Me

Today is week three of the Celebrate Love Series 
and I wanted to do something a little different. 

I wanted to share a little bit of my personal story. 
The love of becoming a mother I will forever celebrate.

I had the honor of guest posting at Pending Perfection
In this post I share how becoming a mother changed my life. 


In my family order I am the youngest of three.  I have an older sister who is thirteen years older than me, and my brother is eleven years older.  They both are married with kids, so I have a total of six nieces and nephews that I love to death.
Before I had children of my own I always remember thinking “I don’t want any children.  I have enough nieces and nephews that I can play with, and the best part is I can send them back home when I’m done.”
You can imagine the surprise when fast forward a few years and at twenty two and unmarried I was announcing “I’m having a baby!”

and week two "Being Raised And Loved By A Step-parent:
My Reflection As An Adult here


  1. Thanks for the link! It was so great having you guest post for me!! :)

    1. Meredith of course anytime. I was thankful that you asked me. Please let's keep in touch and let me know if I can support you in any way, and don't be surprised if I email you requesting you to guest post for my blog in the future. I'm glad we were able to connect. ~Sherri

  2. I am also pending perfection but thank God for his grace and mercy because I would be in a world of trouble without him especially raising my two boys. They slowed me down and taught me valuable lessons about myself. God bought them into my life to make me calm and to think before I react; to make wiser decision and to be selfless instead of selfish.

  3. Motherhood definitely changed me too...for the better. I thought I was selfless before kids, but nothing compared to what I became after. I learned to love in a way I had never loved before. Being a mother is one of the greatest blessings I've been given. I loved reading your post. #SITSBlogging
